Taxing Small Corporations: Increasing Fairness or Undermining Growth?

Alternate Text or Title of article
Calgary, AB

The federal Finance Minister recently proposed changes to the tax code, raising concerns for many small incorporated business. The Finance Minister argues that owners of Canadian Controlled Private Corporations have an unfair tax advantage, since they can store money in their businesses without that money being immediately subject to income tax. But many owners of small corporations argue that being able to store funds in their business is necessary for business planning and that the proposed changes will disincentive hard work and growth.

Join The School of Public Policy for an expert discussion on these changes, and their impacts not only on business owners, but the economy overall. This discussion matters, since it will form the basis of a formal submission and recommendations to the Department of Finance.
